Strategic Plan 2023 – 2027

Our Landscape

The system is our unit of change. We partner with educational systems that prioritize student-centered approaches, inquiry-based learning, enhanced engagement for both students and teachers, and authentic learning rooted in students’ interests and identities.  We engage with systems that believe all educators and students are capable. We collaborate with these systems in three ways:

  •  Large scale competitive adoptions of Educurious science and social studies project-based learning instructional materials
  •  Custom partnerships featuring our distinctive initiative of community-based curriculum co-design.
  •  Mission-driven organizational partnerships for the implementation of high-quality project-based learning

Our Approach

Educurious recognizes the continuum of inquiry learning that sits at the center of the Project-Based Learning (PBL) landscape.  PBL creates an environment where students have agency in their learning and can fuel their developing knowledge and culminating presentations with their own interests, identities, and ways of knowing. Through project-based learning students are inspired to gain content knowledge in core subjects while also building skills in communication, collaboration, problem-solving, critical thinking and creativity.  We do this work to ensure that students are seen, heard, and prepared for the future they choose.

Our Reputation

Stakeholder feedback demonstrates Educurious is a trusted partner with a reputation for quality, care, collaboration and responsiveness. The organization as a whole, and the individuals on staff are highly regarded for their expertise.
